The Brodosplit shipyard in Split, Croatia, has reportedly signed a contract to build two large vessels that, together, are worth more than 200 million euros.
Croatian public broadcasting company HRT reports that one of the two ships is a luxury megayacht, measuring 125 metres, which can accommodate 12 passengers and 50 crew. It would become the third-largest sailing yacht in the world, as well as the largest superyacht to ever be built at Brodosplit.
The second yacht is reported to be a 110-metre polar cruiser, capable of accommodating up to 152 passengers and 111 crew members.

While further details will be confirmed in the coming months, Dino Donjerkovic, Brodosplit’s sales director, told HRT that both vessels are due to be delivered in 2025.
Brodosplit is the largest shipyard in Croatia, located on the northern side of the Split peninsula. The yard has the capacity to build vessels up to 300 metres long and 50 metres wide. Brodosplit was acquired by owners DIV Group in 2013.
Nobiskrug’s Sailing Yacht A is currently the world’s largest sailing yacht, at 143 metres. The 127-metre Oceanco Y721, scheduled for delivery later this year and rumoured to belong to Jeff Bezos, will be the second largest. Oceanco’s 107-metre Black Pearl is currently the third largest sailing yacht.
